's "Best Of 2002" List
The Best High-Performance Audio/Video Equipment You Can Buy

High End Loudspeakers ($2,000 to $10,000)
Category Winner – Revel F30

Definitive Technology BP3000TL

$4,500 per pair
It is hard to think of speakers that can rock harder than Def Tech BP3000s without losing their ability to be able to reproduce complicated and demanding music.

MartinLogan Ascent and Theater
Ascent $4,195 per pair
Theater $2,595

At their respective price of $4,195 per pair for the Ascents and $2,595 for the Theater center speaker, and based on the fact that the MartinLogan Ascents and the Theater center speaker can excitingly capture the live energy of a live musical event. At the same time , the MartnLogans play back surprisingly dynamic, yet hyper-detailed movie soundtracks.

Monitor Audio Gold Series
Tim Hart found another bargain speaker in the $3,000 price range with the Monitor Audio GR20 and its associated 5.1 speakers. Competing directly with the Revel Performa F30’s the Monitor Audio Gold Series has shocked many a jaded audiophile with their dynamics and resolution.

Morel Applause 5.1

These round speakers have caught the attention of music and theater enthusiasts who are looking to get smooth and sexy sound into seemingly impossible-to-fit spaces.

RBH 1266-SE Signature
$2,600 per pair
From "the other" high-end loudspeaker company in Utah comes a pair of speakers dressed to kill and designed to thrill with low bass and smooth mids, all at a price one could realistically afford.

Revel Performa F30
$3,500 Publisher, Jerry Del Colliano has often raved about Wilson WATT Puppy’s at $20,000 per pair. In 2001 the $3,500 per pair Revel Performa F30 became the object of his affection. While not finished to the insane tolerances of the big dollar competitors, the Revel F30’s can sonically stand toe to toe with damn near any speaker costing as much as $20,000 per pair.
